people told me that if have adguard, don't need uBlock. what do you say?
I used to use uBlock, and I liked it

Adguard filters HTTPS/SSL.
Does Bitdefender AV too has HTTPS/SSL scan?

I think its advisable to use any one's HTTPS/SSL.
bitdefender AV does scan SSL.
Is that going to conflict with Adguard, I mean, too many certificates at once?

I guess there could be issues.

I keep my AV's HTTPS/SSL disabled & Adguard's enabled.
thanks for the tip, I do have trouble loading certain sites, let's see if it helps.
But on the other hand, if I disable it in bitdefender, then bitdefender won't be able to scan for dangerous urls within HTTPS connection. Does that matter, or not really?

Scanner is Free. If you buy Premium though the protection is phenomenal alongside an anti-virus. :)
scanner is incredible I went into advanced settings and let it tear through my chrome extensions. It got rid of one that was installed by group policy and was unremovable by any
means.

Very simple and light.
you hit it on the nail.

changes:
I actually consider myself a low-risk user, so I have honed down my active protection:
VoodooShield pro; HitmanPro.Alert; MCShield
and that's it.
fair enough?
Or should I have a light AV?
